Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo
When: February 23, 2011, 7pm
Director: Jessica Oreck (Japanese and English with subtitles, 90m, 2009)
Working backwards through history, Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo explores the mystery of the development of Japanís love affair with bugs. Using insects like an anthropologistís toolkit, the film uncovers Japanese philosophies that will shift Westernersí perspectives on nature, beauty, life, and even the seemingly mundane realities of their day-to-day routines.
Introduced by Professor Eileen Mikals-Adachi, who teaches Japanese language, culture and contemporary fiction at Eckerd College.
Following the program there will be an announcement of the winners of the 2011 "Visions/Voices" Environmental Short Film Competition. Environmentally themed short films both in and out of competition will be screening throughout the festival.
